    I'm getting into Visual interfacing with my AVR projects and I am selecting a Touch screen to prototype with.
    So far I have narrowed it down to 2 different ones that are within my price range.
    The TouchShield Slide , which I could use with an AVR running the Arduino software and bootloader, seems simple to use but whimmpy
    - OR -
    The ezLCD-103 which seems a bit more "robust and powerful" than the other.
    If you have used either;
    1. Whats your opionion, which would you recommend for an advanced newbe?
    2. Ease of use/intergration to an AVR or Arduino?
    Any other recomendations?
